What’s the best way to go about collecting a debt in Massachusetts?

ATTORNEY ANSWER:

If the amount owed is less than $7,000.00, then sometimes its best and more cost effective for the client to file a Small Claims action and handle the claim themselves, without incurring the expense of a lawyer. Since we try to provide the best service possible to our clients, we also try to minimize the expenses that they incur when dealing with a legal problem, even if it means that we can save them money by not charging a fee.

Small Claims actions can be filed for claims less than $7,000.00 and they can be handled by the claimant. However, sometimes it is more productive in terms of producing better and quicker results by filing a regular civil action and incur the costs of a lawyer, especially if there is a bank account or real estate to attach.
